‘Let the Sunshine In’ opens at Cinema Art Theater May 18

May 15, 2018

Starting Friday, May 18, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society's Cinema Art Theater will present “Let the Sunshine In,” a wholly original take on the romantic comedy by one of the greatest filmmakers working today.

Juliette Binoche delivers a luminous performance in the deliciously witty, sensuously romantic new film from acclaimed director Claire Denis. Isabelle (Binoche) is a divorced Parisian painter searching for another shot at love, but refusing to settle for the parade of all-too-flawed men who drift in and out of her life. There's a caddish banker (Xavier Beauvois) who, like many of her lovers, happens to be married; a handsome actor (Nicolas Duvauchelle) who's working through his own hang-ups; and a sensitive fellow artist (Alex Descas) who's skittish about commitment. What reads like a standard romantic comedy premise is transformed, in the hands of master filmmaker Denis, into something altogether deeper, more poignant, and perceptive about the profound mysteries of love. 

Screening times are 4 and 7 p.m., Friday, May 18; 4 and 7 p.m., Saturday, May 19; 4 p.m., Sunday, May 20; 1 and 4 p.m., Monday, May 21; 4 and 7 p.m., Wednesday, May 23; and 4 and 7 p.m., Thursday, May 24. Admission is $8 for members and $11 for future members. Customers are encouraged to purchase tickets online. If seats are available, tickets can be purchased at the theater, starting 30 minutes prior to each screening.
